and bill clinton. all of our coverage and behind the scenes photographs are available on our website c- span.org. let's take you back to january 2009. [crowd chanting "obama"] >> thank you. thank you. my fellow citizens, i stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. i thank president bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition. 44 americans have now taken the presidential oath. the words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. yet, every so often, the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. at these moments, america has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because we the people have remained faithful to the ideals of our forbearers, and true to our founding documents. so it has been, so it must be with this generation of americans. that we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. our nation is at war, again
gingrich shut the government down and bill clinton was president. bill clinton won that hands down. and look, the one thing that i think michael and i agree on and the people in the campaign to fix the debt and simpson bowes, is we're not going to fix our problem, rev, by who wins political battles. if the republican party wants to eat itself alive, sure it will make them happy but you'll lose suburban cleveland, suburban philadelphia, sub suburban st. s and places like that. they're going to go down. what good does it do if they lose control of the house in 2014? it seems to me to be a death wish. >> well, michael, you were chair of the republican party and clearly this is politically damaging if, in fact, they go through with it. congress u under republican control, is now less popular than root canals, replacement reves, cockroaches and don trump. i mean, as a chairman of a party, you chaired it when they had the great midterm election. can you now come back to a party that is less popular than cockroaches? and root canal and tell them you really don't want to do this? >> look,
at the inauguration of bill clinton. besides being one of the most renowned and influential voices of this generation, maya angelou is a big president obama supporter and also very vocal during his re-election campaign, as well. she joins me now via telephone to talk about the inauguration. miss angelou, good afternoon to you. >> good afternoon. how are you? >> i'm fantastic. it is so much of an honor to have you on. you, of course, worked alongside reverend martin luther king, jr., back in the '60s in the southern christian leadership conference. in fact, i know dr. king died on your birthday in april. how does it feel to see the first african-american president inaugurated for the second time on martin luther king, jr., day? >> i tell you, it's so exciting it's hardly livable, that is to say young people, people after my generation can take it with more e kwaun imity, more easily, but for me having been raised in the really, the awful south, it is amazing to think that a black man, not only has been president once, but has been elected a second time. this is really rare in our history. there are on
-line second amendment position and president obama's position. if you were johnson or bill clinton you would have private meetings or ask your chief staff or others to have private meetings with republican members and say, what can we do? what can we agree on? no. they have this task force that is entirely testimony of all the people on his side, the n.r.a. comes in for 20 minutes and he announced the gun control, he does 23 executive orders and has a list of legislation. there is not much evidence that he wants to or knows how to try to co-op the republicans. >>bret: the moody -- bloody end to the algerian hostage stand off. >>bret: the smoke is clearing in algeria as the national gas plant. they captureed five surviving militants but the death toll is rising. 23 hostages have been killed and reuters say the number is 48. the total number of militants and hostages could be 81 with a number western governments upset how this went down. we are back with our annal. the administration said today, a.b. saying we will lead where they can lead but in this situation the algerians took the lead and
she was very proud of her family. of course, her father, bill clinton, her mother, hillary clinton and how they have served and that it was actually her father in his presidency that he was able to sign the bill for mlk day, making that national day of service. so a lot of people very excited to meet the folks who have come out here. kate, we've got one other special treat for you. star jones in a totally different role than what we've seen before. it is so nice to see you. you're looking fabulous. tell us about the red and what that symbolizeds. >> when i go red, i really do go red. i admit this. you know february is the beginning of the national heart month. and go red for women. i'm the face of go red for women. the national volunteer fors american heart association and in that capacity, i was speaking here at the national day of service. one encouraging heart health for the individual and sharing my story of heart disease and survivorship and then two, getting people back involved in their community to advocate for their own health and for the health of their families. >> tell
, as was his father. we don't know why he's not going to be here. that is somewhat unusual. reportedly, bill clinton and jimmy carter will be here. that's obviously expected. another person who won't be here, mitt romney. that's not a slight, but it's kind of weird, because normally a challenger to a president is serving in some sort of official role in washington. they have a reason to be at the inauguration. mitt romney does not. so he won't be here. >> oh. come back and co anchor with me. >> all right. >> i like hanging with you. >> i like the recruitment. >> don't you guys love brianna? see? >> they don't know. [ laughter ] >> thanks, don. >> certainly a beautiful shot. it is perfect, the capitol behind us in the sunset. and it's great to be here with people. we're going to get out with the crowd. thank you, brianna keilar. the festivities, they're drawing people from all over the world, crowds from across washington. we're going to talk about security, and what's going on. we're ramping up for the second inauguration and we'll have more when we come back. right after this. don't go anyw
to newt gingrich about what made bill clinton a great negotiator. he listened to find common ground. this is from the speaker of the house who worked to impeach the president. >> what's missing here, peggy? sometimes i think man nobody knows how to play the game any more to paraphrase casey stengel when he was managing the mets. >> it's true on the hill, speakers and such don't quite control their conferences and their caucuses as they have, but the most from interesting thing that i think-- that has been true of the past few weeks since the president was re-elected, is he's playing it in a way different from previous presidents. previous presidents get a win whether it's close or not and then they try to sort of put their arms about everybody and summon them in. we are essentially a if i felt-50 country still. so you would think the president would have spent the past few weeks going forward saying let's all be together. instead he has been very sharply, definitively "us guys versus you guys" by going at the republicans on hill, by speaking in a way that is very sour about why repu
of the clinton bill, he stood up and said -- he told the story of the valentine's day massacre in 1929. and how it shocked the world when seven gangsters were gunned down in cold blood. it made the fog page -- the front page of every major paper in the nation and around the world. but in 1992, when a woman say to three month-old baby from execution by hiding that baby under the bed -- she was shot and killed along with her husband and teenage son. that story turned up on the second section buried in the back of the new york times. it was not front page news. it was barely news at all. i'll never forget what he said. he said, "i called that defining deviancy down." it wasn't even news. had it happened in 1929, it would've been astonishing. we can no longer to continue to define it deviancy down. we cannot wait any longer to take action. the time has come. as you know i delivered a set of recommendations to president obama on how we can better protect americans from gun violence i have been getting both credit and blame from that. i want to make it clear. the only power the vice president has is
. the welfare reform program work. the greatest decrease in child poverty in america came under bill clinton with a republican congress in the late 1990's. that is just a fact. jeffrey is shaking his head. no, it is a fact. the lowest level of black children in poverty in history was 1997. you could make an argument that having a welfare system shift toward opportunity would work. >> i'm going to give you all the time you need. before that, what would you say then to those who read the "new york times" stories when they did to review 15 years after bill clinton's welfare to work program, that women and children were falling faster into poverty than anybody else? [applause] i too was the program that helped push them in there? were they wrong? -- it was that program that helped push them in there? were they wrong? >> yes, but let me carry you two steps further. i have been working with a former california assembly leader on a project state-by- state to get people out of prison if they are there for non-violent crimes, to get them brought back into society. you cannot discuss how we will solve
clinton, obviously, the daughter of bill and hillary clinton, joe biden, who i spoke with a few minutes ago. he talked about the importance of this day. you know, randi, that this tradition was started in 2009 by president obama. and he hopes that future presidents will continue it. but going back to biden, i asked the vice president's son how his father is feeling going into his second swearing-in. take a listen. >> he's thrilled. i'm very -- i'm happy. he's looking forward to continuing to be the best vice president he could possibly be to president barack obama. he's doing a pretty good job, i think. both of them are. >> reporter: now as we mentioned again, volunteers are starting to stream in. there's seven key themes that they're stressing for this national day to action. a few center around education, honoring the nation's veterans, the environment, and another one is economic development. randi? >> shannon travis, thank you very much for the update from there. and now some news outside the beltway. notre dame linebacker manti t'eo spoke to espn last night. it's his first intervie
with ronald reagan, bill clinton and dwight eisenhower. >> the greatest honor history can bestow is the title of peacemaker. this honor beacon's americans the chance to lead the world at last out of the valley of term oil and onto the high ground of peace that man has dreamed of since the dawn of civilization. >> making the benefits of scientific examinations and -- scientific advances for the improvement of undeveloped areas. story.ic radio's back live saturday morning at 11:00 eastern, part of three days of american history tv rights to inauguration day on c-span 3. >> in 1981, ronald reagan was inaugurated. he had won the 1980 election against jimmy carter. a major issue in the campaign was the iran hostage crisis. as president reagan was giving his address, they were being released. this is about 25 minutes. [applause] >> governor, are you prepared to take the constitutional oath. raise your right hand and repeat after me. i robberies in do solemnly swear -- >> i,-- ronald reagan do solemnly swear -- >> that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states -- >> and
under bill clinton with a republican congress in the late 1990's. that is just a fact. jeffrey is shaking his head. no, it is a fact. the lowest level of black children in poverty in history was 1997. you could make an argument that having a welfare system shift toward opportunity would work. >> i'm going to give you all the time you need. before that, what would you say then to those who read the "new york times" stories when they did to review 15 years after bill clinton's welfare to work program, that women and children were falling faster into poverty than anybody else?

[applause] ok? now that is a very difficult challenge for both parties. one last example
of the 99's under the bill clinton administration. they did it with spending cuts and revenue increases. we had ahe 1990's, combination of things that led to a balanced budget. i think being responsible with our revenue and how we spend it is something all of america is focused on. look what happens when the government is responsible with its revenue. you have the business community living at the government acting responsible with the money. what happens? it means that confidence develops. confidence is such a key ingredient of economic recovery. the stock market went through the roof during the recovery. people got wealthy because of the rise of the stock market. the stock market rose because people had confidence the government was being irresponsible with money. host: we are talking with congressman matthew cartwright, democrat from pennsylvania. he served as an attorney for 24 years. a law degree from the university of pennsylvania law school and representing the state of pennsylvania in the house as well. ent from kennm weeks. let me add to that. guest: ok. that is a boatload of questi
in the second term. >> do you think that this is also something like a precursor to bill clinton's globalization as well? do you believe it is the operation that the president will use five years from now when he isis trying to figure o the next five yearof his life? >> well, it will be the way ta reagan and roosevelt governed by rally i rallying the american public. there three forces in politics in america, the democrats and the republicans and the public opinion. occasionally the congress will rally against the president which is known to happen quite often. when bush proposed social security reform, congress rally and that was the end of that. and sometimes the president and congress can defy public opinion, but they will pay a price. >> and bill just talked about the legislative branch and the executive branch, but let's talk about the judiciary, because president obama in the second term could have an opportunity to nominate at least one and perhaps two supreme court justices and he has made the mark and nominated two women, and the first latina ever to the high court. let's take a listen
eva longoria. chelsea clinton is the honorary chair. >> when he signed the bill he reminded us of what dr. king often called life's most persistent and urgent questions, what are you doing for others? >> reporter: andy rose, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> there are some familiar faces from california in washington, d.c. tonight for the inaugural festivities this weekend. hundreds packed the ballroom in the washington court hotel for the golden state inaugural bash. nancy pelosi says she is not only proud of the president's election. >> woman, minorities, lgbt communie up a majority of the house democrats. that is quite a remarkable thing. >> pelosi says she is hopeful that the house will come together with moderate republicans working with democrats. >>> the mayors of san francisco, san josi and oakland are all in town for the inauguration. mayors ed lee, chuck reed and jean quan are just a handful of the politicians from california braving that east coast chill for the big festivities. ktvus a ken pritchel and torrey campbell will have live reports beginning tomorrow morning and th
